Use propane...as for oxygen, KMS Tools, Air Liquide, etc.

you don't buy tanks, you pay a deposit on them.
goto air liquide as said above, they have good deals.
I always use Oxy/Acet myself

I use propane, and I bought my Oxy tanks anf my Argon tanks
the lease payments are stupid, you can buy a tank every 2 years for the lease payment

so you use propane instead of acetaline? whats the difference? cheaper? do i need different regs? and ive tried air liquide but the problem is i work 10 hours or more 5 days a week and i continualy find that air liquide is closed...is there anyone else or should i stick to them?

regs are the same but the torch is different, though they sell tips for harris and victor torches to convert to lpg

I leased my MIG bottle from Praxair for 2 years then bought one from KMS

Ya buy your own bottles, way cheaper in the long run. I bought mine from NAPA here and they always have full ones for replacement.
